    I Hear Sea Shells On The Sea Shore

    | USA | Extra Stupid, Tourists/Travel, Uncategorized

    (I work at a small shop that sells sea shells and other beach items. A customer comes in and holds a piece of merchandise to her ear.)

    Customer: “I think I can hear the ocean. I thought they were lying!”

    Me: “Um, ma’am…”

    Customer: “What?”

    Me: “You’re holding a cup with a seashell painted on it to your ear.”

    | Orland Park, IL, USA | Health & Body, Uncategorized

    Customer: “You changed the formulation of [day cream]. You should really tell customers when you do that!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, we were not made aware of that change. How did you find out?”

    Customer: “Well it tastes different.”

    Me: “Tastes different? You tasted the product?”

    Customer: “Of course! I taste everything I put on my body!”

    Incheon Further Away From The Answer, Part 2

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Language & Words, Uncategorized

    (I’m an Asian Spanish/English interpreter in charge of taking care of our Spanish speaking custumers. I approach a Mexican customer.)

    Me: “Good afternoon. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Oh my god, you speak Spanish!”

    Me: “Yes I do, it’s a service provided by our store for your convenience. How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “But you’re Chinese!”

    Me: “I’m actually Korean born and raised in Argentina, so it’s easier for me to speak in Spanish.”

    Customer: “That’s not possible! Chinese people only speak Chinese!”

    Me: “I assure you I’m not Chinese and cannot speak Chinese at all.”

    Customer: “But…but Chinese people should speak Chinese!”

    The Customer Is A Fool, Of This I Am Curtain

    | United Kingdom | Extra Stupid, Home Improvement, Uncategorized

    Customer: *holding a pair of curtains* “Excuse me, will these curtains fit in my window?”

    Me: “I’m not sure Sir. Do you have the measurements of the window with you?”

    Customer: *confused* “Measurements? I need to measure the window? How do I do that?”

    (I hand the man a leaflet explaining how to measure windows correctly.)

    Customer: “Oh, okay. I didn’t realise you had to take measurements. I just guessed it was one size fits all.”

    Environ-mental

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Math & Science, Uncategorized

    Me: “Ma’am, would you like a bag to carry any of these items?”

    Customer: “No, I’m an environmentalist. I don’t want to add to destroy our environment.”

    Me: “Ma’am, security for this store requests that everyone at least receive a bag to know that you’ve bought items here.”

    Customer: “You can’t tell me that I have to take a bag and I won’t have it. I refuse to contribute to the garbage problem!”

    Me: “Fine, would you like to keep these hangers that your clothes came with?”

    Customer: “No, just throw them out.”
